  • Real Housewives of New York Reunion Part 1 Recap

    By Ilana Angel

    August 18, 2015 | 7:49 pm

    Typos are lovingly provided courtesy of Jose Cuervo.

    I am very excited about this reunion because it is going to be explosive, but also sad because it means the season is over and we’ll need to wait a year to see them again. It has been an amazing season, highlighted by the...

    How is it possible that we are on week 19 and it is over? I can hardly believe it. Truly. I love this show and I love these ladies and God help me, I love that Bethenny is back. While some weeks have been painful to blog as they were...

    I didn’t get a chance to recap episode 16 last week because life got in the way and I simply ran out of time. I am now left having to blog 2 weeks at once on a day when I cannot drink because I had surgery yesterday. Dear Lord it is...

  • Is Skinnygirl Bethenny Frankel dating Modern Family’s full-figured Eric Stonestreet?

    By JNi.media

    July 15, 2015 | 2:46 pm

    Classic comic duo Laurel and Hardy managed to play off their opposite body types, so perhaps Skinnygirl (that’s her product line — Skinnygirl cocktail) Bethenny Frankel and Rubenesque Eric Stonestreet can pair up in harmony.

    E! News reports the Real Housewives of New York star...

  • Bethenny Frankel:  Real Housewife or Kappara Chicken?

    By Deena F. Greenberg

    April 20, 2015 | 2:30 am

    Bethenny Frankel, former and current Real Housewife of New York (covered weekly by Jewish Journal blogger Ilana Angel), has come out with a new book.  Amazingly, in the book, called “I Suck at Relationships So You Don’t Have To,” Frankel, in the middle of a rancorous second...

  • The Bethenny Talk Show is Really, Really Bad

    By Ilana Angel

    September 9, 2013 | 10:18 pm

    I am not a fan of Bethenny Frankel or the crap she peddles.  I think her drinks taste horrible, her lies are epic, she cannot keep her stories straight, married for TV, had a baby for TV, puts gag orders on anyone who speaks badly about her, is unwilling to admit that her path to...

  • Conversations From Twitter – Part 2

    By Ilana Angel

    May 24, 2012 | 1:27 am

    Last week I began my series of interviews with reality TV fans who follow me on Twitter.  I spoke with and it was great.  She is a wonderful lady, a lover of reality TV, and a southern belle.  This week it was my pleasure to speak...

  • The Self-Destruction of Bethenny Continues

    By Ilana Angel

    May 1, 2012 | 10:04 pm

    Bethenny Ever After continues to be a massive crock-pot of crap.  It is slow moving, repetitive, predictable, and painful to watch.  There are things that just don’t match up, which makes sense since this is a show about Bethenny and none of her stories add up.  She has been lying...

  • A Bethenny Blog for Ireland

    By Ilana Angel

    April 26, 2012 | 9:21 am

    I have not written about Bethenny for a few weeks.  It’s hard to watch her let alone write about her.  I have not recapped the last couple of weeks of Bethenny Ever After because it’s a broken record.  She recycles the same jokes, the same stories, and the same drama.  The other...

  • An Open Letter to Bethenny Frankel

    By Ilana Angel

    April 6, 2012 | 12:51 pm

    Dear Ms. Frankel,

    My name is Ilana Angel and I am a writer for The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles.  I write a blog about my life and worldview called “Keeping the Faith”, and a blog about reality television called “Keeping it Real”.  As you know, I write about you a...

  • The Backpedalling of Bethenny Frankel

    By Ilana Angel

    March 26, 2012 | 9:50 am

    It’s been a week since Bethenny’s “Lost at Sea” episode aired.  I sat in amazement at what I was saw.  If you read my blog on a regular basis you know that I used to love Bethenny but now find her to be the single most annoying reality television personality in America.  She...

  • Is “Bethenny Gets Divorced” Coming to Bravo?

    By Ilana Angel

    March 15, 2012 | 11:50 am

    Remember when Bethenny was funny and you were pulling for her to find love and happiness?  Neither do I.  She has been so unappealing for so long that it’s impossible to now remember a time when I liked her.  She is bad television, and her show has now become focused entirely on...

  • Bethenny Sells Out Her Marriage

    By Ilana Angel

    March 5, 2012 | 11:16 pm

    We are headed to the Hamptons.  Again.  But not before we meet Bethenny’s new driver/security guy.  We are five minutes in and she crosses the line, talking to him about lingerie and feminine hygiene.  She also lets us know she is inappropriate because it’s funny.  Bethenny does...

  • Bethenny Ever After – Glimpses of Goodness

    By Ilana Angel

    February 27, 2012 | 8:27 pm

    Monday is a rough night of blogging.  Between Bachelor Ben in desperate need of some shampoo, and Bethenny losing her hair, Monday nights are painful.  Not painful enough that I am not going to blog about it, but rough enough that I have got wine standing by just incase.

    We start...

  • Bethenny is Back and Nothing has Changed

    By Ilana Angel

    February 20, 2012 | 9:56 pm

    Before we get started, let me say Bethenny announcing she had a miscarriage on the day her show premieres is odd.  This woman pees in a bucket on camera and lets the world know when she has sex, but is not going to announce this while on the way to the hospital?

    One other thing is...

  • The Bethenny Frankel Charade Continues

    By Ilana Angel

    January 24, 2012 | 8:52 pm

    It was announced today that Bethenny Frankel’s shelved talk show is back on.  Fox released a statement saying it has purchased a six week preview. This comes after Telepictures, who was a potential distributor, backed out last year because Bethenny did not test well.  She was too...

  • Bethenny Frankel Defends Herself With a Gag Order

    By Ilana Angel

    October 20, 2011 | 4:10 pm

    I wrote a blog a couple of weeks ago about Bethenny Frankel and her therapy session off the coast of Nantucket.  Apparently Bethenny thinks my take on the story is “irresponsible journalism” and has taken to Twitter and the press, to assure her fans she would never lie to them, which...

  • Bethenny Frankel, Reality Star, Has No Grasp on Reality

    By Ilana Angel

    October 2, 2011 | 9:00 pm

    Bethenny Frankel was on Ellen this week and it was fascinating.  She cannot stop lying, and when her lies were questioned by Ellen, she lies over the lies.  You can actually watch her dig herself into a hole and it’s interesting to see.  I honestly don’t know how she does it.

  • Bravo Fans hit Twitter to Silence Patti Stanger & Millionaire Matchmaker

    By Ilana Angel

    September 25, 2011 | 9:06 pm

    I am not a fan of Patti Stanger, or her “reality” show, Millionaire Matchmaker.  I think she is obnoxious, rude, disrespectful, bad for women, and bad for Jews.  She claims to have a 99% success rate, yet there has never been a successful relationship depicted on her show.  It is...

  • Does Bethenny Frankel’s True Hollywood Story prove she lies?

    By Ilana Angel

    September 22, 2011 | 10:15 am

    I think Bethenny Frankel is bad for women, for a lot of reasons, and I simply do not understand why she is so popular.  I mean, I get that people watcher her because I do, but I do not get why women idolize her, want to be like her, and consider her a role model.  Why?

    I watched the...

  • NYC Housewives Implode & No Comment from Survivors or Bethenny

    By Ilana Angel

    September 18, 2011 | 11:22 am

    We’ve been waiting for Bravo to listen to our pleas about the ladies of NYC.  It’s been painful to watch.  It was once a fun romp for an hour a week, but has became a crap fest of screaming, fighting, and no fun.  Well, change is coming and change is good.  Hopefully.

    I’m not...

  • The Countless Countess: A Conversation with LuAnn de Lesseps

    By Ilana Angel

    August 4, 2011 | 1:46 am

    I am addicted to The Real Housewives of Anywhere, USA.  With the exception of the DC chicks, who bored the hell out of me, I watch all the different cities.  I find them to be both entertaining and mortifying. Contrary to popular belief, I am not on the payroll of either Bravo, or...

  • The Real Housewives of NYC Show True Desperation on Twitter

    By Ilana Angel

    July 30, 2011 | 12:12 pm

    I’m not a real user of Twitter.  My blogs are tweeted by The Jewish Journal and me, but that is the extent of my Twitter use.  I like the idea of it, and if I understood how it worked I’d probably use it more.  I used to follow a lot of people but it became exhausting, as I felt...

  • Real Housewives of NYC Reunion:  Why are they still talking about Bethenny?

    By Ilana Angel

    July 26, 2011 | 12:48 pm

    Part one of the NYC reunion was interesting.  By interesting of course I mean a lot of shouting and behaving badly.  On a regular week it is embarrassing to admit that I watch this show, but today is rougher than usual.  These chicks are crazy.  By “these” of course I mean Ramona...
